The Union of Jewish Students annual conference

Six Jewish university graduates have launched the new Funding Circle for Jewish Students, with the aim to help to fund and support new, innovative Jewish student activities on campuses around the UK.

The recently graduated students are seeking to fuel student activity on campus, by offering funding of any amount from £50-500. 

Initiatives are set to be submitted to the group, who will then meet up and discuss before making their decisions.

Once those choices have been made, the co-ordinators of the project will receive support from the graduates, who will be their mentors. 

However, the intended projects must be student run and organised, must be open, inclusive and cross-communal, so that they meet UJS’s core values.

The panel of graduates consist of Noah Nathan, Joshua Marks, Rob Prager, Joe Cohen, Danny Kessler and Michael Bodansky; all of whom where ex Presidents and committee members from their respective institutions.

Joe and Rob were also recipients of the prestigious Alan Senitt Outstanding Achievement Award from the Union of Jewish Students, which recognises contributions to campus life.

This latest initiative follows a string of other Jewish students run projects, campaigns, and initiatives, such as: #rethink2014, V-scheme, Haverut, UJS Blood Drive and The 100 for 100 Challenge.
